    Help this newbie 2020 MS 950s

    Hi there,
    New member here, ordered a 2020 MS 950s and waiting it to be delivered. Gray one with spoke wheels...
    Already started shopping for the bike and bought some parts like Termignoni, lower seat, graphics, adjustable gear and brake levers, Touratech engine guards and the Evotech hand guards.
    Also looking for the Touratech pannier racks only, don't need the 2 all boxes, just want the racks, if anyone have a set lying around or know, please let me know. As new to the bike, I have no hands on experience on what other parts I might be in need of in regards of protection.
    Can those experienced guys lead me to the right direction as I don't want to purchase something that will have little to no daily affect. What are those parts that I need for the protection? 99% pavement usage here...
    Thanks for the replies in advance

    Seemed to have covered most bases. Id add Evotech radiator and oil cooler guards if they are not already on your list.

    ......and some sort of bar end protection and front fork bobbins - both areas that will almost certainly get a hit in most types of spill. You will probably end up replacing the stock screen at some point in time I suspect (most members on this forum seem to have changed theirs -  a variety available and very much a question of personal choice based on aesthetics, rider height and Lid)

    Any real world useable sat/nav holder you would recommend. Have a sumo 595lm that I want to instal as well...

     If you did not get one with the bike, I would certainly add the center stand.

    milanodriver, I have a Zumo 345 mounted in the high level position above the instruments  - it was the Ducati kit and fitted by the dealer when I acquired the bike in 2017  . I really like it in that central "head-up" position but I do know that it does not suit everybody

    Regarding screens , there is a school of thought that the stock screen is OK as long as some spacers are added - which smooth the air flow and help prevent buffet. I have the MRA Vario screen fitted which is about the same height as the stock screen and actually comes with spacers - the down side of this screen is that it does make the bike look a bit uglier with the deflector raised. I get no buffet at all even at higher speeds however I think it will probably not suit anyone above about 172 cms . Lots of previous threads on this forum about this whole screen topic as opinion is divided

    As mentioned depends where you want it mounted, I preferred the above display. The Ducati mount wont work with your satnav without some sort of adapter as the Hole spacing is different. I had the Engimoto mount on mine but it vibrated about a bit depending on the road surface but in the main was pleased with it. The Evotech mounts look better or there is another similar type at iconicparts.uk.

    The Engimoto mount works well. I had mine on the bike for three years. Yes, you will get a bit of vibration through it but you are on a motorbike! Ive had a 660 and a 595 in it and now a zumo XT, which is less prone to vibration being about 100 grams less in mass.
